Love

EDB3E6A4-4D4E-4F4A-9B42-FB13B7340F36Playing with some new toys today.  When I did my great craft room purge I sold all my Copics!  Yes, every last one of them. I just wasn’t using them and that was my criteria for purging. If it’s not being used…it gets sold.

I wanted to try a new alcohol marker…not have every colour…just a few for highlighting and shading. The Nuvo alcohol markers are very economical and I found them to blend well. I also like the feel of the barrel in my hand…very comfy.

Back to the card. I stamped the Cosmos Background in black and coloured it with the Nuvo markers..just pretty neutral colours. Next came the shine. I added Nuvo Glitter Drops to the centres. I also added some Deco Foil randomly for more bling. The sparkle is amazing. I find taking photos of shiny stuff so difficult. My picture just doesn’t do the card justice unfortunately.  Here’s a close up of some of the shimmer.

  1. Doing some ‘catch-up’ visiting Lee-Anne! LOVE this card. It’s so beautiful and very creative. Great idea about just having a few markers for shading. I may take my cue from you and I rarely use my Copics markers (not that I have a lot of them anyways). I love the neutral shades for this design. xx
